The Carlsburg of the B&B World

U read the reviews all say how good it is. U book and go and realise all are true.

From a warm welcome followed by tea and biccies in conservatory . We stopped in room 7 nice size spotlessly clean with small balcony.

Nice spacious car park so can leave car and walk downhill to bowness which is about 15 min walk
The bed was huge and comfortable too everything u need in room including fridge and DVD player and if u need a film they've plenty to borrow.

All u can say about breakfast is fabulous good selection and top notch ingredients everything ud want including a good cup of coffee.

A must place to go and stop if in the area.

Absolutely top notch

We've just stayed here for 3 nights for my belated birthday weekend and were really blown away by what a fantastic property this is! Rooms are immaculate, and have every creature comfort you could possibly want (we were in Room 6 which although on the ground floor facing the car park, is really quiet and were not bothered by noise or other guests at all). The beds are super comfy, and our wet room had underfloor heating and a heated mirror so no foggy glass after a shower!

Brilliant attention to detail in every aspect of this place. The breakfast deserves its award winning status - you must try the Eggs Benedict, absolutely delicious :-) The property itself is right in between Windermere and Bowness and easy walking distance to both, but a taxi will only set you back £3.50 each way (Trevor will point this out to you, but we only needed to use it once). Will definately be back again next time we're in the area!

Room Tip: Room 6 is on the Ground Floor facing onto the car park and main road - but we had absolutely no prob...

Weekend Birthday Getaway

Had room number 2, top the stairs on the first floor landing with bay window overlooking the street - great for people watching of the strollers moving between Windermere and Bowness!!

The genuine warmth of the greeting upon arrival and the attention to detail in all aspects of Hawksmoor are second to none and we cannot recommend the hospitality of Trevor and Philippa highly enough.

A truly enjoyable stay and we will be back!

Faultless. Wouldn't hesitate recommending to friends

I stayed at Hawksmoor guesthouse on 22nd-24th Aug for a 30th Birthday surprise for my wife. I have to say that at the end of our little break we were both delighted with the choice.

We were in room number 1 which was a beautiful room with a very generous bathroom, fridge and all the amenities you could require. Breakfast was delicious and the service throughout our stay was faultless, nothing was too much trouble.

The guest house is located in between Bowness and Windermere so it is a perfect base for getting around. Saying at Hawksmoor gets you discount at the local spa which we took advantage of, well worth a pop down for a little pampering.

All in all we really couldn't fault our stay. The room,staff,location and welcome were all top class. If ever I go back to Windermere I will go back.

Believe what you read its all true!

My boyfriend and I had a flying visit to the Hawksmoor, as soon as we were shown to our room we regretted only staying for one night. We were greeted in the car park by Trevor, who was really friendly and offered to take our bags to the room. He had great local knowledge, and made us feel right at home. The room was gorgeous, it was classed as a small double, but was larger than a lot of other rooms we have stayed in. It was absolutely spotless, modern and comfy and the chocolates on the bed were a really nice touch. The location of the Hawksmoor is perfect, right in the middle of Bowness and Windermere. Having the use of the spa was a real bonus, just one regret that we didn't book a treatment prior to arrival, there was no space left as we left it too late.

The en suite was gorgeous, body wash and hand soap was supplied and the shower was really powerful and spacious. All the facilities in the room were brill, we asked for a fan as it was a really hot day, and nothing was too much trouble for Trevor, who brought us one straight away. What can I say about breakfast, other than it is the best selection, of fresh food I have ever known at a guesthouse. 5***** The staff were all really helpful and friendly, and ensured we were having a good experience. I can honestly say this is the best guesthouse I have ever stayed in, and will be visiting again in the future. Well done Hawksmoor, you've got it very right!

Room Tip: Any room is 5*
